Police say woman lied about baby death
CINCINNATI — A woman who claimed to have lost her baby during a deadly shooting at a gender reveal party wasn’t pregnant, police said Monday.
Colerain Township Police Chief Mark Denney said investigators don’t know why the woman had claimed to be pregnant. She told Ohio news organizations she lost her unborn child after she was wounded in the leg. Police said their investigation is being impeded by “leads known to be lies” that are wasting time.
A 22-year-old Indiana woman, Autum Garrett, was killed and eight people, including three children, were wounded in the shooting when two men opened fire July 8 inside a home. The victims were there to learn the gender of the supposedly expectant mother’s child.
Police haven’t identified the gunmen or their motive.
